International Wheat Situation.
A modification of the very strong
international wheat situation has
caused further depression in the mar
ket. The increased offerings of
wheat from Russia and Canada in
competition with the United States
has, at present, lessened the urgency
of the demand from western Europe
where the crops have been seriously
impaired by heavy rains.
The statistics covering the world's
wheat production now indicate a nor
mal harvest somewhat in excess of
last year. The distribution, however,
shows liberal yields in the three chief
exporting countries of the northern
hemisphere and a greater need of
supplies in the leading importing
countries. While there will be no
scarcity of wheat such advantage as
there will oe in the international
market should be on the side of the
The United States has had, until
recently, a steady inquiry for wheat
and flour from abroad despite the
handicap of excessive ocean freight
rates. Considerable wheat has al
ready been disposed of and while
there still remains a large surplus,
much of this is on the Pacific coast
which rarely seeks a market, in any
volume, this side of the Rocky moun
The Russian harvest is larger than
last year but the reports indicate
that the quality is not good. West
ern Europe has plenty of poor wheat
and is in need of good wheat to mix
with the wet, damaged gram. North
America at the present time is the
one country that has a plethora of
good milling wheat The Canadian
crop, in spite of the rains during the
early period of the harvest, is grad
ing well and the winter wheat crop
of this country is especially fine.
The spring wheat crop in the
Northwest that has been marketed to
date is of good quality but the recent
rains have lowered the grade in the
northern half of the belt. The har
vest, however, was so generously dis
tributed that the average grading
will show a high quality of milling
Domestic prices are still in close
adjustment with the international
market. The high freight rates are
world wide, so that buyers will have
to take the increased cost of trans
portation into consideration as they
will need large weekly supplies from
the surplus countries.
The present lull in the demand
from abroad for domestic wheat
should be only temporary as the for
ward movement must be in liberal
volume to meet the necessities of the
importers and the United States, at
the current level of prices, will get
its share of the demand before the
season is over.
